Ian Wright returns
With an even more super-duper electric drag racer. Codename SR-71
Wrightspeed "SR-71" will deliver 0-60 in 2.5 seconds - AutoblogGreen
I'm not quite sure what this achieves beyond the accomplishments of John Wayland and his White Zombie.
Welcome to Plasma Boy Racing, home of White Zombie, the world's quickest street legal electric door slammer in the 1/4 mile drag.
This will achieve a half second faster 0-60 than the "White Zombie". As well, it will be offered up for sale which is also beyond the one-off White Zombie.

The next electric car - Wrightspeed X1 Prototype (1) - Small Business
Those items dpeilow put in bold seem wrong to me.
X-1 is a pretty generic name for the first in a series of experimental vehicles. With this next project being named after the Blackbird, I now realize that X-1 is a direct reference to Yeager's Bell X-1.

Ah... The X1... :biggrin:
I think he needs a "Tires per mile" gauge.
Some old pics of the X-1, courtesy of the EVnut, Darrel Dickey:
that certainly does not look very comfortable :biggrin:
EVnut is a great website.
Luxvelocity : Electric power on the way for Ariel Atom ?
This isn't a car for cruising the blvd, that's for sure! It actually IS comfortable in there, however. At least as comfortable as in the Tesla seats. Doesn't look it, but it's amazing. Even when you get over the part of fearing for your life.
For a guy who built a cool EV, check his pessimism.
Maybe he's going into the truck business..
Nice find TEG
He has some good thinking bit his predictions just seem so counter to theemitionsa that a driver's car resonates. his car especially/ maybe he is disillusioned hat he could not get investors.
I have always wondered why people think that driving a gas-electric hybrid will save them loads of money on their gas bill.
I have driven hybrids exclusively for the last 5 years...I doubt I would have saved more than 5% annually on my gas costs. For me, driving a hybrid has always been about keeping tons of emissions out of the air.
I think many of those who bought hybrids for the gas savings are probably disappointed...but the argument for EVs and against ICE vehicles must transcend economics...
I'm not sure I agree with Darrell's conclusions about EVs...it is a cool car though and he has some great youtube vids!
I noticed he repeated the old $1000/kWh myth too. That number simply isn't true.
